Toasted Sesame Oil - mmm!

I love the flavor that Toasted Sesame Oil adds to salad dressings and stir fries. You don't need a lot - just a tablespoon or two adds a wonderful nutty flavor. Use it to add a little bit of "mmmm" to an Asian salad or a favorite stir-fry. Just for fun, here's one of my favorite salad dressing recipes that features Toasted Sesame Oil.

2 T sugar
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 T toasted sesame oil
1 tsp salt
1/4 c oil
3 T vinegar

Toss together with mixed greens, a few green onions and some slivered almonds for a simple Asian salad. Top with grilled chicken strips and you have a delicous main dish salad.
